So many reasons-<br />
1. Guilt and/or shame- don't want to hurt or bother the other person<br />
2. Fear<br />
3. Depression makes people not think clearly<br />
4. Hard to be around people<br />
5. Too many other reasons.<br />
Usually it isn't intentional but at times it can be. For me, a lot of it is shame and not wanting to burden others. Plus I feel like no one cares so why bother opening my mouth.
I push people when I am feeling down because I dont want people to see my weaknesses, my tears and my anguish. I feel that it can be judged and I feel a little crazy on the inside, like not in control of my emotions. I dont like it, so how can someone else like me when im like this. I judge myself, so how can others whom I built this trust with, not judge me the same. Ive seen the judgement come out already in other instances, but them i find myself suffering in silence...
Because a person fels that you don't have any energy to deal with people and that you can only deal with yourself. That is why I push people way when I am depressed. I have a lack of energy to be around people when i am depressed. People should just let me be and let me sleep it off or work it off :-)
For me, it's because I don't want to bring my friends down along with me. Why should I ruin their happiness just because I can't be happy?
I don't know, most of the time I don't even realize I am doing it.
Because they think they don't deserve them, and that they are only a burden to them.
Because they feel worthless, and don't want to ruin their partners lies either. The other thing is sometimes it is a desperate plea for help.
I'm depressed right now, and I push people away because it is embarrassing to admit that I am depressed. I don't want to be a burden. So I belong to EP, here I can talk without feling ashamed!!! I am about to loose my boyfriend because he feels like he failed because he couldn't help me, he feels it's his fault, so I try not to spend too much time with him so I can act OK when he sees me! I've been depressed for 6 months and stopped answering the phone to my parents and sister because I knew they would figure it out, I "came out" to them on Tuesday, 6 months too late!!!
I don't know but if you find out please tell me. firstname.lastname@example.org, Rob
They feel like they bring others down.
Its because they want loneliness and its the best medicine to beat depression as u will come out of many new ways by urself..
People with depression tend to beat up on themselves and not do the right things to get out of the depression. I should know.
No one wants to see you in your "Jammies"..now do they??
